CNN host Alisyn Camerota asserted that President Donald Trump has much worse problems with sexual harassment than former Vice President Joe Biden during a panel conversation Monday.
“That’s the question, I think, is what’s next,” Camerota said about Biden’s potential response to the allegations that he handled former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores against her will at a political event. “Because obviously, we’ve seen several high-profile people handle this in different ways. Brett Kavanaugh completely denied, now on the Supreme Court, President Trump, completely denied even though 15 women came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and/or assault, so worse than what Joe Biden is being accused of.”
Biden is facing accusations from at least one individual of inappropriate touching and other unwanted actions, something the potential presidential candidate vehemently denies. (RELATED: Joe Biden Responds To #MeToo Allegations)
“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention,” Biden said in a statement Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores asserted that she raised the accusations now due to the fact that Biden was considering running for president in 2020.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed the former vice president, wanting to know why Biden didn’t mention Flores in his initial statement.
“Joe Biden this week was apologizing to Anita Hill for his role in the Clarence Thomas hearings,” Conway said Sunday. “Why didn’t he apologize to Lucy? Why didn’t he apologize to this woman?”
